I am gonna flood you Big River..
Music wise-The show is in that 5 range.
Sound wise a 5 for Soundboard
yet a 3 for extended periods of distant Audience recording.
Of all the longstanding Cowboy tunes- it is Big River that has the hottest built in jam.
Good to see this song still smoking in 1976.
Also find it interesting that this is one of the few Cowboy tunes that is not in full on 'tragedy' mode.
Sitting on Top of the World had a similar story line but with Jerry doing the lead vocals.
Just loved the B.E. Woman with Donna Jean - just right.
LAZY LIGHTNING- Wow!!! This is like the 2nd time played and the song already is developing some real kick.
vocals are very cool.listen
to DJG with those harmonies.
She is just under Bob and it makes the song sublime.
Jerry mixing it up with a few well placed oh's and ah's. Weir strong with the lead vocals.
they would stretch this out over the years
yet nice nice take here on the fundamentals of this tune.
(Every notice how Supplication and MUSIC have these little karate chop moments like HAYYYYYYYYYYAH!!)
Mission- That is a pretty deep song.( What makes one song more spiritual than another?)
Is it fair to say that you are in good shape with PITB opening the 2nd set. Donna way more reserved.
Personally I am fine however which way she wants to go. Her passion in 1973 takes my breath away.
i love that she stays out on the stage for every tune in 76. She is a most undervalued member of the GD Family.
Like what I am hearing from the first 2 shows.
I Favorited the entire East Coast tour with a Soundboard or Matrix for every single night!
Wow, the reprise to PITB almost sounded like they might venture into DANCIN' before that crazy drum snafu.
Might as Well, Jerry having no fear
SWELL-2nd tune/ 2nd set and it works!
And here comes a mid set -3rd tune SAMSON.
(Practice made perfect with this song.)
Cosmic Charlie- Now personally this would have made a sweet encore once in awhile especially in the 80's and 90's
Let it Grow good arrangement (future- 1st set closer)
LIG > Stella blue -just right!
They get to the Dancin' in the Streets !
JUNE 76 Pacific Northwest
2-solid nights for the gd faithful.
Note:BOARD gone----- from Dancin' thru encore.
(kinda reminds me of searching for the good sound at a show but being just out of optimal range.)
